If that were the case though why is a single map over 3gb of data?
The beta has two maps totaling 980MB. I'm sure SP will be the eye candy mode. There has to be a limit defined in multiplayer graphics quality wise because being able to set extremely low settings could give people an advantage, or very high setting players would have a huge disadvantage.
